MailScanner-5.0.0-2 runlevel priority

CentOS 6.7 x64

I noticed that /etc/rc*.d/S80MailScanner became /etc/rc*.d/S20mailscanner.

By default, mysqld is /etc/rc*.d/S64mysqld

Therefore mailscanner starts before mysql daemon, which is a problem is
several cases, including when config is stored in a mysql database or when
custom perl modules that depend on mysql services are used.
